2003 Research Questions Answered

1.  How extensive is ITS sequence additivity in B. glabella, B. longii, and B. fernaldii?
It appears to be universal in these 3 species.

2.  Does ITS sequence additivity occur in other Braya species?
No, apparently not, at least in North American species.

3.  Can patterns of additivity be used to infer parental lineages?
Yes, at least to some extent. Additional evidence will probably be required to provide definitive answers.
